Today’s theme for the 2009 Challenge is Black & White, Spot Color. You’re going to need to apply your sharp detective skills for this one! Not only are you looking for the perfect black and white image, but you’re looking for a unique part of your composition that stands out. This is where your post-processing skills can shine. A minimalistic approach can really pay off as well. We’re looking for just one, focal point in the photo to retain its color. How do you do this? I found several simple tutorials; first, second, third, forth, fifth.

Once you’re ready to submit your work to Flickr, you’ve got to do two important things. First, make sure you tag your photos correctly; “2009challenge″. Also, if you haven’t already, join the PhotoChallenge group on Flickr. Then, submit each day’s photo to the group’s pool.
